The following is a reference/historical list of the 70-millimeter engagements of “Logan’s Run” in North America. These were full-frame (2.20:1) prints blown-up from anamorphic 35mm photography. The audio was discrete six-track. A few of the prints were encoded with Dolby Noise Reduction, the first known usage of Dolby in connection with the 70mm format. The Saul David production/MGM release was directed by Michael Anderson and starred Michael York and Jenny Agutter.

“Logan’s Run” was among four 1976 first-run films released with 70mm prints for selected engagements.
